Catherine Hardy Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) BABCP Accred.
I understand that clients come to therapy feeling anxious, stressed or having relationship problems. My aim is that what ever the situation you can share your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental, confidential setting. Sharing the problems and exploring thoughts and feelings can lead to a deeper understanding of your issues.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you to understand the link between thinking, feelings and behaviours and is especially helpful with worry, depression, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, stress, specific phobias, social phobia, OCD, IBS, health anxiety and many other issues. CBT enables you to overcome your anxiety and depression. Anxiety is treatable thinking about things in a different way can help you to develop strategies and develop new perspectives.
I have extensive experience working with young people and adults. I am qualified to Advanced Diploma level in counselling and Post Graduate Diploma Level in CBT. I am accredited with BABCP.
I am also an EMDR practitioner. EMDR helps with traumatic memories which may not have been processed properly. This may mean that you re-experience the event. This treatment aims to help you remember the event rather than feeling that it is happening again and again.
